Round 3: Ireland v France
 
Mark Pougatch is joined by Brian O'Driscoll, Jonny Wilkinson and Gareth Thomas for live coverage of Ireland's RBS Six Nations match with France at the Aviva Stadium in Dublin.  
 
Ireland bounced back from a loss in Scotland at the start of the championship with a comprehensive win in Rome against Italy, and now play at home for the first time this year against a France side that impressed in beating Scotland in their second match. Kick-off at 1650. 
 
Commentary is from Miles Harrison, Gordon D'Arcy and Ben Kay, with additional pitch-side analysis from Olivier Magne and Shane Williams, with Gabriel Clarke reporting.
